Telecommunications & Optics

In the telecommunications sector, securing international patent protection for core technologies is critical for maintaining a competitive edge. Our team understands the critical role the patent system plays when it comes to obtaining a commercial advantage.

Our deeply-experienced Telecommunications & Optics practice group has more than 25 years of experience in protecting innovations in the telecommunications sector, in that time securing many thousands of Australian and New Zealand telecommunication-based patents for our international and local clients. Our team is also highly skilled in crafting the international patent prosecution strategies required to maximise the scope of protection in different foreign jurisdictions for our local clients.

Optics is a key enabling technology for telecommunications as well as many other applications, from environmental monitoring to quantum computing. Madderns acts for clients ranging from one of Australia’s leading photonics research institutes to small start-ups commercialising developments in technical optics.

The Madderns Telecommunications & Optics practice group has the experience and technical knowledge to partner with clients of all sizes, from individuals to multinationals, to achieve their commercial goals in this rapidly developing field of technology.
